NBN Project

Representatives of Service Stream, an approved construction partner of NBN will be in Cunnamulla between now and September to assess suitability to upgrade existing telecommunications equipment at every property in the town. To do this work Service Stream representatives will need access to each property, but the work can be done without the householder being present in most cases as they are mainly inspecting the existing telecommunications line from the street to the outside wall of each property. There is no cost to residents for this work and a letter giving full details of the work being undertaken was recently mailed to Cunnamulla households.
